Straight out of Sony’s Tokyo Game Show press conference, the company’s announced that PlayStation 3 firmware v3.50 is to hit the PlayStation Network next week on September 21. The update will allow the system to playback 3D content from blu-ray 3D discs.
In late April, Sony added the ability to play 3D games via a firmware update with v3.30.
According to Eric Lempel, Sony’s VP of Network Operations in the Americas, “there will be a few additional features.” We’ll hear more about those on Monday, though. Hopefully, they’re good new features.
